Ike Ekweremadu, Wife Found Guilty Of Organ Trafficking

Nigeria’s former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, along with his wife, Beatrice, have been found guilty of organ trafficking in the United Kingdom.

The duo alongside their daughter, Sonia, and a medical doctor, Dr. Obinna Obeta, were found guilty of facilitating the travel of a young man to Britain with the intent to exploit him after a six-week trial at the Old Bailey.

They criminally conspired to bring the 21-year-old Lagos street trader to London to exploit him for his kidney, the jury found on Thursday.

The judge, Justice Jeremy Johnson, will pass a sentence at a later date, The Guardian UK reports.
